15mm Roman Buildings From Warbases

I am moving forward with my Italian campaign project, after buying the really nice Warbases stable and villa, I went back and got some more of their lovely kits. The first was this 15mm Mansio. This will stand in as a farmhouse on the Gothic Line or a Romano-Gaulish Mansio for Infamy, Infamy


I painted this exactly the same way as I painted the stables and the villa, using Pollyfilla for the walls and Wills pantiles for the roof. 


It has a lot of detail and I didn't need to do a huge amount of work to getting it looking how I wanted. I went back at the end and added a garden and the vines growing up the walls. These were helpful in covering any mistakes I made in the plastering... 


I also bought a small tower, this is actually supposed to be for a wall set, but I thought it would make a nice little town bell tower or other type of building you see across Italy. 


Unfortunately, it doesn't have a doorway, and I could have made one, but I didn't bother in the end. It doesn't bother me too much as it's not immediately noticeable. 


The third building in this group was a small store. 


This is a lovely little building, very cute and is a nice addition to a rural farmstead. 


Here's all three together, as with all Warbases kits, they start out a little basic, but a bit of work gets them looking pretty nice. And you certainly can't argue with the price and customer service the they provide.

    1. Cheers Kevin, I am adding bits and pieces as I go along for the Italian Campaign. It's not at the top of my list, just something that is bubbling away in the background, so I have no plans, just whatever takes my interest. There is a tutorial for the first of these buildings I built and you'll find it on my channel, but I'm afraid I didn't do a tutorial of these.
